The CSE Listing, When Approved, Will Increase Intiva Biopharma's Visibilty in the International Financial Community and Help Attract Interest from Global Investors

DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / August 22, 2018 / INTIVA BioPharma Inc. ("INTIVA" or the "Company") (OTCQB: NTVA) announced today that it has filed a preliminary non-offering prospectus with certain securities regulators in Canada and has filed a listing application to list its common shares with the Canadian Securities Exchange ("CSE").

Intiva BioPharma's shares currently trade on the OTCQB market in the United States, and upon approval of the CSE listing will trade both in the U.S. and Canada.

In announcing the CSE listing application, Alain Bankier, INTIVA BioPharma's Interim CEO, said, "Cannabinoid pharmaceutical development is increasingly becoming a global activity. Consistent with this trend, we recently announced that Germany-based, Dr. Benedikt Schoser was retained as an advisor to INTIVA. Dr. Schoser is a world-renowned expert on the molecular mechanisms of muscle loss and weakness, and myotonic dystrophy, conditions for which INTIVA previously filed a patent application in the U.S."

Bankier also stated, "Since Toronto has become the world financial center for cannabis and cannabinoid pharma-related financings, it became clear that a Canadian stock market listing would be beneficial for INTIVA in potentially accessing capital from global investors and developing increased trading activity of the Company's shares."
